Hearts for Hearts was first introduced to our Allen-Stevenson community in 2017 by a compassionate group of boys seeking to support victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the Carolinas. The effort was so successful that the making and selling of origami hearts to support a worthy cause has become a beloved student-driven tradition at the School.
Invention Convention 2021 was part of a decade-long Allen-Stevenson tradition promoting students’ problem-solving and creative thinking skills. This year’s theme was “magnets,” and it was inspiring to see how each student devised a unique and thoughtful way of integrating the theme. Equally inspiring was the boys’ joyful enthusiasm to explain the function and thought process behind their invention to each visitor.
